    Blimey I feel awful, achey and so, so tired, completely exhausted and I've been sat at the 'puter all morning. I'm guessing it's the Atkins flu then, just hope it doesn't last too long :(

    Am I right in assuming this is my body going into ketosis and in a day or two I'll feel not only better but full of energy too - here's hoping! :)

    ah, yes sounds like Atkins flue to me Jan, I had it for about 3 days, then woke one morning feeling amazing, still do feel amazing every morning still to be honest. Well unless I've been bad and over indulged in alcohol or carbs. ;)

    Oh budge up Woofy so I can snuggle up next to you & have a good old snooze LOL

    Just have to get through it then and look forward to feeling amazing! My diet's been so rubbish lately that I can't wait to feeling good again - it's been a long time!

    Thanks all for your replies :)

    My diet has been rubbish too:sigh:
    I think my body has gone in to shock already from just caffeine withdrawal:eek:
    Well I was having 10+ cups of coffee a day I suppose! I'm on the green tea today instead.

    Hope you feel better soon!
